Ingleburn railway station is located on the Main South line, serving the Sydney suburb of Ingleburn. It is served by Sydney Trains T8 Airport & South line services.

History[edit]

Ingleburn station opened on 19 August 1883.[2]

An additional track was opened to the west of the station in 1995 as part of the Glenfield - Ingleburn passing loop.[3] This unelectrified track was used by freight and long distance passenger trains. In December 2012, the track was incorporated into the Southern Sydney Freight Line and became freight only.

In April 2014, a major upgrade commenced. This will include lifts being installed at the south end of the station and a new structure on Platform 1.[4][5][6] It was scheduled to be completed in 2016.

Since the second half of 2017, Ingleburn railway station has been served exclusively by the Airport and East Hills line, meaning commuters have to change at Glenfield to travel to either the city via Granville or to Blacktown via the Cumberland Line.[7][8]
